"Boppin' the Blues" is an early rockabilly song recorded by Carl Perkins. It would be hard to think of rock and roll without The King of Rockabilly's influence. The Tennessee native blended black gospel, pop music of the day, and country music he heard coming from the Grand Ole Opry on his father's radio. In 1954, he heard Elvis Presley's early recording of "Blue Moon of Kentucky on the radio and told his wife, "There's a man in Memphis who understands what we're doing. I need to go see him." The rest is history. Presley's version of his song "Blue Suede Shoes" became a rock and roll standard. "Boppin' the Blues" has that telltale Perkins rhythm. It's clear from the lyrics, that rhythm had a hold on him but he wasn't about to let go. "Well, the doctor told me / Carl you don't need no pill / Yeah, the doctor told me, boy you don't need no pill / Just a handful of nickels / The jukebox will cure your ill." The backing track for "Boppin' the Blues" is available with background vocals or as an instrumental on Karaoke Version.
